I own almost every book illustrated by the extremely talented Rebecca Dautremer, and those books are among my dearest possessions. She has the ability to give life to a dreamlike atmosphere thanks to her elegant, sophisticated lines and emotionally charged colors.
When Babayaga was young the other kids constantly made fun of her, because she had only one tooth, because she was different. However, that doesn't justify what she became. She always harboured in her heart an evil flame and she is the one who chose to transform it into an inferno. It was Babayaga who decided to become an ogress. No excuses.
Lastly, this is also the story of a kind and clever girl, one whose generosity will be rewarded in the most unexpected ways.
"Those who bring sunshine into the lives of others can not keep it from themselves." (James M. Barrie)
